No sign for Racecourse

Reported via desktop in the Damaged / Missing / Facing Wrong Way category anonymously at 14:24, Mon 18 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3069612.

Hello, this road is closed and there is a sign that states 'Access to Water Station only'.

All of our customers are required to enter our Racecourse by the entrance down this road. We have had many problems with customers being confused about how to get to our venue due to this signage.

Please may the sign be amended to say 'Access to Water Station and Racecourse only'?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for updating the signage.

    Just one further request.

    At the corner where the entrance to the Racecourse is there are a number of further signs stating that the road is closed.

    Would it be possible to add a sign with an arrow directing Racecourse traffic left into the Racecourse there?

  • Good Afternoon. Thank you for your further request additional signage. it is believed that there is sufficient amount of signage already on this approach to our works. We have added signage on A5 directing the Racecourse traffic to this entrance already, also there is an existing Racecourse signage information about this entrance. Therefore we hesitate to add additional signs, which could result in confusion to the drivers & obstruction of the carriageway, which leads to Water treatment works.

  • Hello As you leave the A5 to enter Heathencote it says the road is closed?? Please can we have the usual signage to say access to the Racecourse is still open. Thank you
